Horizon Forbidden West Dev Showcases Aloy's New Character Model
Their statement in the PlayStation Blog reads as:
"We actually developed and tested the game simultaneously on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, because it’s very important to us as a studio to ensure PlayStation 4 players get an equally immersive experience. With our knowledge from Horizon Zero Dawn, we knew that we still had some unexplored resources that could push the realism and quality of our character assets forward; it’s great to now be able to tap into that knowledge and experience for the sequel."
As part of this update, they've also indicated that some of Aloy's most notable changes include facial and body capture accuracy enhancement. That'll allow her to look more realistic, whilst providing a careful increase of polygon density to capture handmade and used outfits.
Horizon Forbidden West will launch for PS4 and PS5 platforms by February 18, 2022. Make sure to follow us for more gaming news and updates.
